Re: Lack of posting topics and overall interest

I have enjoyed reading this thread. While it often seems the VAMWorld forum traffic is down, compared to other sites specializing in Ikes (Ikegroup.info) and Franklin Halves (Franklin Lovers -can't even open that site now), VAMWorld is the "facebook" of specialized collecting!! Average posting on Ik...

1921-D VAM2B - Very Late Die Stage

Here are images of what I believe should be called a very late die stage of VAM 2B. Images on the VAMWorld page are not very complete but text is fairly accurate. Should there be various stages - ie 2B, 2B2, 2B3?? http://www.grandrapidscoins.com/images/Desktop/2023/October/2bo.jpg http://www.grandra...

Here are images of a 1922-D VAM3A with a reverse rim CUD.

Re: New Shipping Regulations Prevents Canadian Commerce

I'm guessing this has more to do with Canadian import regulations that eBay or USPS policy. eBay still allows international shipping to most countries.... but I am guessing Canada changed regulations which make if very difficult for eBay and the USPS.

1878 7TF VAM 118 or something else?

First look at this coin suggests VAM118 but upon closer examination I am not certain. Note that this coin has a dramatically doubled 2nd right star, has reverse die lines and does not have the die marker expected in the Cap. What am I missing here? http://www.grandrapidscoins.com/images/Desktop/2023...

1878-CC VAM15? or Something different?

Here are images of what looks a bit like VAM 15 with line between lip and chin but also has significant die gouges at the LIB of LIBERTY. Note vertical die gouges immediate above I and diagonal die gouges from above left top of B through the L. I have included images of other die marker to help with...

Help explaining metal flow on Cracked Planchet 1921 Peace Dollar

Here are images of a 1921 Peace Dollar with a cracked planchet but I am trying to determine what the metal flow is at the top of the crack between the D and W of IN GOD WE. Almost looks like a die crack but that seems to be just too coincidental. Assume this metal flow appears on some cracked planc...

Three Rolls of Circulated Peace VAMs - Better dates and better VAMS

Been saving for years - setting aside the better VAMs but it's time to clear everything out. I have three rolls of better Peace VAMS with many better date coins. Selling here only - $650 per roll plus shipping - total of $1970 for the lot. Can provide images if desired.
